The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, in a statement on Wednesday, said the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, had directed the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, to ensure appropriate disciplinary action was taken against Useni, who was shown to be drunk in a video that surfaced online earlier in the day.
Oti said that Useni, who was tried in an orderly room, confirmed that he was the one in the video, adding that he was dismissed to serve as a deterrent to others.
The PPRO added that the CP had ordered the shutdown of all beer parlours located in police formations and barracks in the state.
Oti said, “To prevent reoccurrence of this type of incident, the CP has directed the officer in charge of the Command Provost Section to embark on a tour of all police formations and barracks within the state with a view to identifying and shutting all beer parlours within the police community.
“In the same vein, the CP warns against offering policemen alcoholic drinks while on duty by members of the public.’’
